Aerial Imagery

Aerial imagery and photographs can be a very helpful tool in the planning and layout of your harvest operation. Aerial imagery can provide clues to important questions:

  • Are there any rivers or streams nearby?
  • What are my choices for access to the tract?
  • Are there any right-of- ways of concern?
  • Where are the existing roads and the best locations for new forest roads?
  • Where are the property boundary lines?
  • What forest cover types are present?

There are several places to obtain current aerial photos, available at these links:
